Growing up I was never that into the idea of frozen meats.  My mom would pull out what I thought was a questionable item from the depths of the freezer and my sister and I would likely turn our noses up at the concept.  Oh, how times have changed!  Little did I know frozen proteins are not only amazingly economical and time-saving, but can be just as delicious as their non-frozen counterparts.  Kids can be such jerks sometimes, they don't know a delicious dinner when they see one! 

Sometime around my last round of the Whole30 I discovered a local farm in Temecula...

I posed this question to my Instagram community, "If I bring sorbet to national ice cream day will I get kicked out?"  Chances are, yes.  I mean, I would probably kick me out, if it weren't for the fact that I've tasted this watermelon, honey, basil sorbet and it's next-level scrumptious.  I’m grouping this sorbet in with the nice cream category, because I’m hoping you’ll give me a pass that it’s not true ice cream, and due to the fact that it is all natural, dairy free, and refined sugar free.  I'm keeping this post short and simple because it's very hot out and the sorbet is melting.  Enjoy!!...

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught this still life that I snapped recently of a silver bowl overflowing with bright green guavas!  I styled this pic as an ode to one of my favorite accounts, @PlantsonPink.  I'm waiting patiently for the day that Lotte Van Baalen selects one of my pics for her feed!  This is what millennial pink dreams are made of folks.  Anyhoo, back to guavas!  These beauties were gifted to me by a co-worker who, knowing I hail from a tropical island, thought I would probably just flip over her fresh tropical fruits.  Boy w...
